ARGO - music and video installation - Galerie Charlot - Paris (France)

Argo is a project started in June-2017. It has duration length equal to the rest of Jacopo’s lifetime. Based on David Kuller’s technology (My-Air) Baboni Schilingi wears 24h 7/7 a special device conceived to measure his rib cage. A dedicated computer reads in real time the data coming from his device: how long Jacopo is breathing, how deep are his last ten seconds or one-minute breaths, how fast Jacopo is breathing, how expanded or compressed is his rib cage, etc. All these data are converted into musical functions in order to generate a not determinate duration music. Jacopo Baboni Schilingi is particularly involved in projects that create bridges between human body and the world of machines. Argo is one part of the body centred artistic research of Baboni Schilingi. Argo project is supported by Françoise and Jean-Luc Déchery, Camille Fournet – Paris.

Monographic concert - NOX - for two singers and live computer
Soprano - Tamara Nur Bounazou, Mezzosoprano - Séraphine Cortez
Institut Italian de Culture - Bruxelles - Belgium

 

Tamara-sito.jpg COTREZ Seraphine-sito.jpg

Nox (night in Latin) is a single composition in four movements inspired by the night and the gradual disappearance of matter. This is a work for two voices (soprano and mezzo-soprano) and live computer. The text of Nox is entirely taken from Ecclesiastes from the Bible in its Latin version. The choice of Latin has been done because of the sounds of the language that are particularly suitable for singing.

Live computer means a particular way of using the computer in order to ketch the vocal sound in order to treat them without any temporal delay. The use of electronics (live computer) aims to create vast soundscapes in respect of interactivity between performers and the sounds distributed in space. Nox is a cycle which investigates, according to different axes, vocalization towards the use of electronics. This is a cycle that offers a new virtuosity between the singers and the computer. This virtuosity is based on the interaction between voice and machine through the capture, processing, dsitribution of sound. The latest sound-processing techniques are explored here: as the super-amplification, the expected time, freezing the spectrum, granulation, spectral translations. All these electroacoustic techniques articulate with the purely vocal and compositional techniques define Nox cycle as a music astetcic research and creative new virtuosity.

The four parts of Nox were composed between 2003 and 2014. For this reason each movement has a the same given Roman numeral "II" to indicate that it is the "second" version. These second versions have all been completed and revisited in 2015 for the release of this CD. The four movements are connected without any interruption to propose one and only one composition. This final and definitive version of cycle Nox is dedicated to my sons Clement and Arthur.

HUGE - for piano and live computer - Commissioned by Deutsche Grammophon
Nuit Blanche

Pianist - Simon Ghraichy - Institut de France - Paris (France)

HUGE is a new original composition for piano and live compuetr belonging to the cycle « highly ». Highly is a cycle of compositions intended as a tribute to the music performers.Very often playing a composition of contemporary music there is a real discrepancy between virtuosity displayed during the concert and many hours of study. However, Highly is based on the pre-existing experiences of the musician, and it requires an exceptional virtuoso work.

Live performance Bodyscore with Alia Mroué (11 a.m. - 4 p.m.)
Festival Artonov - Halles Saint-Géry | Sint-Gorikshallen - Place Saint-Géry 1 Bruxelles - Belgium

Alia-sito.jpg Body-score-modi-sito.jpg

Since 2007, Jacopo Baboni Schilingi has been developing his projects Bodyscore and Identigraphies, where he composes on bodies, men and women, inspired by the energy, the aura, the pulsation, the breathing of the body, the grain of skin, which, therefore, participate intimately in the musical creation. During this performance the audience is invited to come, to stay or just pass, and they can observe the composer working lively.

Live performance Bodyscore with Nicholas Isherwood (5 p.m.)

Festival Artonov - Halles Saint-Géry | Sint-Gorikshallen - Place Saint-Géry 1 Bruxelles - Belgium

Isherwood-sito.jpg Alia2-sito.jpg

Then the dark is done. Nicholas Isherwood comes on stage and joins the model, Alia Mroué. Using a flashlight, he reads the notes on the body and sings the composed score lively. It is a very emotional moment, where the music, revealed by the song, takes its reality before us, mixing the body of the model, the voice of the singer, the beauty of the calligraphy into an ultimate artistic gesture.

"If we were in Asia, in China, Japan, Korea, they would say I write on Qi or Ci. In our own continent, Europe, I say that I write on people’s soul, on their spirit, on the living energy that we call the body." (from Identigraphies, edizioni Kappabit - Rome)

TERRA - music and dance performance - conceived by Jacopo Baboni Schilingi
Festival Artonov - Halles Saint-Géry | Sint-Gorikshallen 
Place Saint-Géry 1 
Bruxelles - Belgium
Dancer - Fanny Gombert

TERRA is a dance and music project conceived by Jacopo Baboni Schilingi in collaboration with dancer PeiJu Chien-Pott (Taiwan). Terra is a project that uses a technology called MyAir, designed by engineer David Kuller, and also presented in another project by Jacopo Baboni Schilingi, "Argo". The dancer carries a sensor (MyAir) that allows her to detect at any time in real time the dilatation of her rib cage, the number of her breaths over time, the maximum and minimum thresholds of her breathing, the phenomena of apnea and / or hypopnea etc. All these parameters related to breathing are automatically translated into music data. Terra's music is thus generated in real time by the counterpoint between two musically translated breaths: that of the dancer mixed with that of the composer.

Nexus-concert.jpg Nexus-01-sito.jpg

CHANEL NEXUS Hall will hold a special concert in collaboration with Jacopo Baboni Schilingi, an artist known as a composer specializing in interactive music. In honor of the spirit of CHANEL's founder "Coco Chanel", a lover of the arts who unstintingly supports artists, Baboni Schilingi was inspired to compose a new string quartet entitled "N.5." In this special concert, in addition to the new work N.5, Baboni Schilingi will stage a unique performance using a special system he has devised in parallel with the performance of violins, viola and cello string quartet. Tones played by the string quartet will combine with electronic sounds in real time to create a novel experience in music. Come and enjoy the harmony of classical music and technology in a unique world view created by Baboni Schilingi.

Morphogenèse - Monographic Bodyscore exhibition
111 photographies
CHANEL NEXUS HALL - Ginza - Tokyo (Japan)

morphogenèse-sito.jpg

Morphogenesis (in English) is the set of laws that determine the form and shapes, from the living one (animals, trees) to the more abstract ones (music composition). This photo exhibition shows Jacopo Baboni Schilingi’s practice known as “Body scores”. He has been writing music scores on human bodies since 2007. At first, these were experiments, but they have since transformed into a new compositional practice. He writes works directly on bare human skin. The score is a codified link, written by hand, which indicates how to embody the emotions that the composer expresses through his creation. Then Baboni Schillingi takes pictures of them, because he wants people to be able to read all his emotional intentions. For Baboni Schilingi the photography of his “human” scores is the only way to make people see all the intentions that led him to write a particular piece of music.

CINERE - a part of Alias - Hommage au statut de la femme
Music - Jacopo Baboni Schilingi
Texte - Elsa Revcolevschi
Saison Numérique-2020 - France

Cinere-JBS.jpg Cinere-Elsa-01.jpg

Cinere, performed by Elsa Revscolevsky alone on a stage, is embodied by two evanescent situations: Sarah Kane’s life and her works, Elsa’s life and her body. Through an intimate inner monologue by the two women, Cinere reveals the humanity of its actresses. The works by Sarah Kane, an English writer from the second half of the 20ieth century, highlight the neurosis and the lack of understanding from her contemporaries that plagued her life, through the inability to understand oneself, the call to transcend from desire into mysticism, in many different ways. Elsa Revscolevsky uses this project to seal an intimate deal with the author and with herself, turning her identity into a story spread all around the world of eternity and alterity. Elsa shares this stage with the specters of her personality, facing her own doubles shown in the video of the performance of the same show 7 years ago, every performance of the show being shot on video every 7 year for an undetermined amount of time.
